Oregon(14-2) wrapped up the Libby Matson Tournament Monday with a convincing 9-1 win over host Pacific (7-3) at Bill Simoni Field.
Junior Jessica Moore (6-1) won her third contest of the trip and kept her 0.00 weekend ERA spotless to go along with five strikeouts, four walks, and two hits allowed in the five-inning start. Junior Mikayla Endicott pitched the sixth (1K, 0 BB, 1 H) and senior Brittany Rumfelt the seventh (2 K, 1 BB, 0 H).
Oregon had 11 hits from seven players, junior Christie Nieto led the Ducks with her 3-for-3 effort that included a pair of doubles in the third and seventh innings. Two other Ducks collected a pair of hits – sophomore Samantha Pappas (2-for-4, 3 runs) and freshman Courtney Ceo (2-for-4).
UO relied on a four-run third inning, then added three runs in the fourth, and single runs in the sixth and seventh innings to earn revenge. In their previous meeting, the Tigers won Saturday’s tourney opener, 4-2, via a sixth-inning comeback.
